'Because I said so' is good enough

While wandering through various Internet parenting sites the other day, I came across a professional who advises parents to never say, "Because I said so." She maintains that if a parent lacks a "logical reason" for a request, the parent should not make the request. And when a child asks for a reason, she tells parents to encourage their children to challenge authority "because the authority over them might not always be looking out for them like you do."

Circulatory system needs exercise

Getting older is the pits! I injured my leg four weeks ago and have had to spend a lot of time elevating it. The inactivity hasn't helped my aging body - especially my arthritis. And because my puppy, Raven, has been missing his daily walks, he now sneaks out on unsupervised neighborhood rendezvous, during which he seems to lie down and roll around in things that give off very obnoxious odors. My body may be aging, but my sense of smell is excellent.

How to keep mold out of your house

Damp, moldy buildings can make asthma worse and cause coughing, wheezing and other breathing problems in healthy people, but there is no good evidence that it can cause other illnesses, the National Academy of Sciences concluded in a 2004 study. But they also said that more research would be done to investigate possible links to health problems and ways to build dryer structures.

Don't try to interpret child's behavior

Q: About a year ago, my husband and I underwent a major move with our 3-year-old. Six months later, I gave birth to twins. Needless to say, our first-born is feeling deprived of attention and has become a real pain to live with. She has become very disruptive and disobedient. Do transitions of this sort require changes in one's parenting approach?
